One of my favourite resorts is The Tamara in Kabbinkad estate in Coorg. The main reason why I love this place is that this is where you can come up close with the mighty Western Ghats and its biodiversity. Being an avid birder I have never ceased to admire the wonderful avian species found here. The best part of this resort is that you will see birds all the time, all round the year – it’s just that you probably will see different birds. And that is where the charm of this place lies. You never know what avian surprises are in store.
Some of the birds seen here include Blue Capped Rock Thrush, Malabar Grey Hornbill, Scarlet Minivet, Grey Wagtail, Malabar Trogon, Common Emerald Dove, Nilgiri Flycatcher and more. Here are some birds I spotted and captured – if any names are wrong, am happy to be corrected:
Thank you Lithin and Bopanna, the two enthusiastic naturalists at The Tamara who helped me spot many of these birds.
